Workshop Refund & Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel a workshop

If you are unable to attend your booked workshop and it’s more than 14 days in advance of the start date, then we will try to offer a transfer to an alternative date if the same course is planned for another date and there are places.

If cancellation is within 14 days of your workshop I’m afraid we are unable to offer a refund due to the uncertainty of being able to fill the space at short notice.
We do understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances may mean that you can’t attend so we are happy for you to send along a friend to take your place or to pass or sell it to somone – just let us know.

Our right to cancel a workshop.
Should we need to cancel a workshop due to unforeseen circumstances, we will give you as much notice as possible of the cancellation. We will give you a full refund or if you prefer a transfer to an alternative available course, space permitting we will try to accommodate this.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept any liability for travel or other costs.

Tickets do not need to be printed.
